Intermedaries for Scale
Intermediaries for Scale is a Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation initiative working across a diverse set of partners to serve transforming institutions as connectors, advisors and strategists. The initiative focuses on collaborating with institutional teams to create the required conditions to initiate and sustain transformational work to improve college completion outcomes for students of color and students from low-income backgrounds.
Higher Ed Equity Network
The network’s strategy is to function as a policy, strategy, and national influence group that will persuade and position policymakers, higher education institutions, advocates, and funders to take new, bolder, and more accountable actions that lead to economic and social mobility for Black, Latino/a/x, Indigenous, and other historically underserved students.
Our investments focus on the “who” and the “how” of transformation: colleges and universities committed to redesign and the intermediaries supporting them; and the knowledge, tools, and resources to guide different aspects of the transformation process.
Supporting intermediary organizations to execute their best work
Support strong intermediary organizations equipped to guide and connect many more diverse colleges and universities as they develop and implement their plans for comprehensive change.
